Mat. McHugh“Go Don’t Stop” / “Is This Love” (Live at Random Hall -Jan ’13)

“Go Don’t Stop” (Live) Background:

Enlightening with his words as he is with his music, here is what Mat. McHugh had to say about his song “Go Don’t Stop”:
“Go Don’t Stop’ was the first song I wrote for ‘Love Come Save Me’. It basically sums up my philosophy in three words. I always like to throw snippets of songs around in the set and approach a show as if I were a DJ but instead of decks with vinyl spinning I have a guitar and my voice instead.”
